What’s Happening Today – August 14, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife:
A national first for The First State. Now that Delaware is the first and only no-kill state for shelter animals, what, exactly, does that mean? The Delaware Director of the Brandywine Valley SPCA in Georgetown, Walt Fenstermacher, helps us dig into the designation. He’ll also tell us more about an event where you can find a new furry friend without having to pay an adoption fee!
How about a career change, of sorts? If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s really like to be a law enforcement officer, here’s your chance. Deputy Communications Manager with the Ocean City Police Department, Ashley Miller, stops by with details on the Ocean City Police Department’s Police Academy for Citizens.
They’re two of the biggest changes you can make in life – buying and selling a home. The process can be daunting. You can end up paying too much, or being paid too little. That’s why having the right real estate broker is crucial. Pam Price of RE/MAX Coast and Country, in Delmar, says she has sold more than 60 homes since January. She hopes you’ll consider her if you want to make a move.
Over the past few months, we’ve stopped by Gateway Subaru, in Delmar, to show you some really great options when it comes to vehicles. We’ve learned that there truly is something for every lifestyle, but what about when you get to the dealership? Perhaps there’s some uncertainty of what to expect during the actual process of buying a car. 102.5 WBOC‘s Corey Phoebus stops by the dealership to help clear up any confusion.
We meet a young woman from Rehoboth Beach who is changing the world one smile at a time. Her name is Riley Maedler and she’s been through more than most people who are twice her age. That’s fueled her passion to brighten the lives of others in similar situations. Riley and her mother, Janie, stop by to tell us more about Riley’s Smile Foundation.
Think back to when you were growing up and the movie characters who impacted you. Does a Disney princess make that list? For a lot of people – yes! And when you combine an opportunity to meet one of those princesses, with an incredible effort to give back to people in need, that’s a win-win situation. We learn about an event where you can do that, and it’s all for a great cause! Linda Larkin, who played the voice of Princess Jasmine in Aladdin, is coming to Rehoboth Beach. The event will benefit the Kim and Evans Family Foundation.
